Fedora Installation :: Rpmdev-setuptree Doesn't Create Any Directories?
Jan 16, 2009
I am trying to apply a patch to my linux kernel. I have FC8 with kernel 2.6. I found the following instructions on how to build a custom kernel (which I am following)My problem is that when I run rpmdev-setuptree,t doesn't create any directories, like it should according to the instructions. I am logged as a normal user (not root)in my home directory. I have no idea what's going on
Need help maintaining permissions across multiple directories. Have Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. O/S installed, updated and running with no problems.Why is it that my administrator user id doesn't seem to have root permissions to create directories? I am trying to setup hosting 3 separate websites and therefore create 3 separate directories to manage all associated files for the 3 websites. Also, I am attempting to read through the tutorials located at:URL...
i am in need of linux help. iam at college and i need this back/restore script to pass this final part of an assessment. i require a backup script that will not only backup but also restore files to the relevent directories. e.g. users are instructed to store all wordprocessor files in a directory named wp. so i am needing to create a backup directory and 3 directories within that and some files within the 3 directories and then back them up ot restore them. l know i should/have to do this myself by been trying to get/understand info for the last few days and came up with zero.
I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.
I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.
I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?
1. This script will create directories for a specific datatype. Example rickk, rik, rikky etc.2. This script will aslo create subdirectories labeled by the duration of an event.For example if an event where to take place for 5 days, May 5 - 10th. Folders will be labled:20100505, 20100506, 20100507, etc will be included in each datatype.Since this exercise will take 6 days there will be 6 subdirectories under each datatype.3. This script will also create cgi scripts for each of the dataype and day of the the exercise.For example dataype "rik" for May 09 will read rik5.cgi, since May 09 is the 5th day of the exercise.This is how it looks so far, it works great but I realized that if and when I plan to add more datatypes that its going to involve alot of repetivie typing. I figure to simplify this whole thing would be best to use loops. Can someone direct me to some good information concerning loops and sample of loops? I have a feeling that what I need to do is going to involve a nest of loops.
#!/bin/ksh root_dir=/opt/global/webservices/apache/app/test/dynamic/ cd $root_dir
I can log in as root and create directories fine etc But when I ftp or when I try to use the file manager on plesk, I get a permission error when I try to create a directory anyone any ideas why it does this ? Also i have a wordpress blog and when I try to add a new theme the theme wont add, because it is unable to create the folder to put the new theme into so this seems to be teh same issue, ive tryed altering the folder permissions but this doesnt many any difference. is there a way to let my ftp and wordpress be able to create directories ?
I'm studying for the RHCSA certification (Tautology?) and I'm struggling a bit with this objective Quote:Create and configure set-GID directories for collaborationI've followed the instructions on the deployment guide (except that I created a different directory): http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...ers_and_GroupsYet, whenever I create a file in this new directory (logged in as a member of the owning group), permissions are set to 644, so other group members cannot edit the files.I checked the umask value and it's set to 0022 and the permissions on the directory are set to 2775
I'm trying to create a 10.04.3 installed with a specific set of packages: nothing obviously special about it, just ubuntu-desktop, a few devel tools, and with a pre-seed file that sets up a few non-default parameters.
Everything works exactly the way I want it to, except for one important detail: the install always pulls packages over the network (and possibly updates to the apt database--it's not always easy to tell, during the install, exactly what it's doing). In any case, it stalls if the network goes away in the middle of the install, and since the install is intended for places with poor, intermittent network connectivity, so this is an issue for me.
I tried doing an install without any network connectivity, and it succeeded, so all the necessary packages are in the ISO. It's only when the network is available that it tries to pull over something (possibly apt files, since that's where the process seems to hang for hours when there is a slow network). So I can install from scratch in 10 minutes when the network is disabled and 2 hours when the network is enabled--and no other changes!
I don't care if the resulting ISO file doesn't fit on a CD (as long as it fits onto a DVD), but I want an ISO that doesn't insist on reaching out over the network during the install.
I am trying to write a script to pick the directory name from a list of file. Here is a detailed picture.Have a file name LIST which contains the follwing for example/apps/oracle/product/test1/apps/oracle/product/test2/apps/oracle/product/test3I need a script that reads these line from LIST and creates foldersin /apps/oracle/product/test1/backup/date/test1 after reading the first line /backup/date/test2 after readin the second line/backup/date/test3 and so on.
Here is the issue:I create saome variables to make shortcut to some directories I go frequently (so, I then I type, e.g. cd $P_DIR). Of Course before that I put a valid value into P_DIR variabe.Also, alias, asalias cls=clearSo, I type cls, and is the same as the commando clear (but shorter)What I want to do is that those variables as aliases stay in the computer when I reboot or turn off and turn on.So, I put "somewhere" (this is the place(s) maybe one for variables, and other for aliases, turn of the computer, and when I turn on, the aliases and variables are still there
I'm running OpenSuse 11.0 in a lamp configuration with Apache 2. I configured Apache with the .conf files instead of YAST because I am running virtual hosts (that's another story).
My problem is that my server will not render the pages unless the permissions are set to 775 which I know is not necessary. This is also causing a problem because I am trying to install WordPress onto the server. WordPress will run, but it unable to upload images because it cannot create the directories required.
Apache2 is running as 755 with root as owner and www as group. I changed the owner of the htdocs sub-directories to myself, and created a group that has permissions to write to the directory. WordPress runs as my user and has the same permissions (775).
I'm mounting a shared folder in an arch linux guest on a windows 7 host in Virtual Box. The shared folder's filesystem is ext3 and is mounted in windows 7 with Ext2Fsd. I mount the shared folder at boot with this fstab:
At work, using SambaKerberos and ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I joined my machine to our ADS network. Again using ActiveDirectoryWinbindHowto, I modified both common-account and common-auth with these settings.
I've had a recent idea to have PHP take information from a form, save it to a file, which in turn is read from a local script as root (cron) which will create the user account, proper directories, add the website to the Apache sites, and reload Apache. anyone actually accomplished this before? And if so, can I get some links or some ideas to possibly help me on the process of getting started?
I noticed in Fedora that in Authenticate Configs ->Advanced, that there is an option to "Create home directories on the first login".I'd like to know if its possible to enable that through a text config file on a CentOS box that has ldap authentication enabled. Right now it's complaining that the home folder does not exist upon loggin with an ldap account.
I can do:mkdir messages and then: touch messages/hello.txt Is there a command that will do both - create the directory if it doesn't exist, and then the empty file? Something like: touch -p messages/hello.txt
I have an internal hard drive and an external hard drive, both with about 350 GB of data. The data came from the same source, but over the last couple of years, different people have moved files around to different directories, and some files have been deleted. Now I want to merge all the files onto the internal hard drive. I estimate that 80% of the files on the external hard drive are the same, so I don't want to copy 290+ GB of data over when I already have it.
Therefore, I need a way to find just the files on the external hard drive that don't already exist on the internal one. In other words, I need to create two lists of file names irrespective of directories and compare them, selecting only the file names that exist in one list OR the other. I've Googled for solutions but can't find anything suitable. There are ways to create text files of the file names and compare them with diff, but they have to be in the same order, and since these files are in vastly different directories, that won't work.
I'd like to create a tar file on my machine to distribute software to other machines which are all alike (including, usernames, groupnames, etc). I need to create certain files and directories with specific owners on the target machine. In order to do that, I use
Code: tar --create --owner=someone --group=somegroup --file package.tar files. However, for this to work, someone must be in my /etc/passwd and somegroup must be in my /etc/group. Is there a way to fake this so I don't have to create a bunch of users only for that purpose?
Hi Linux Forum People! This is my first post. Somehow I'm not able to mount directories from other machine using autofs. Autofs maps successfully loaded into NIS client, but autofs does not recognize them. Please see belowI'm running RHEL4
I've got a small issue that when a Windows user creates a new folder through Windows Explorer (from the menu or by right clicking) the new folder is only accessible to that particular user. Example: user SABKAR (member of the HR group) creates a new folder called MarcTestMenu in a shared Samba directory through Windows Explorer:
At this point user MORAMY cannot copy a file or open the directory MarcTestMenu. MORAMY gets a 'not accessible' error message in Windows. If I su to the Samba box and issue this command:
how I can get the correct default permissions when users create directories through Windows?
I want to connect my modem straight to my fedora 13 box, using it as a firewall, and I want to use my wireless card to set up an ad-hoc to give internet to the windows computers in my house. My router has been messing up and I am trying to create a quick fix until I can solve the problem.
My eth0 has internet connectivity but when I use the brctl command to try to create a bridge it doesn't let me add my wireless card, wlan0, and also I lose internet while my eth0 is in a bridge. I am fairly new to Linux.
Is it possible to restrict users to their home directories and allow admins to have different home directories? Essentially I want users to have a folder in /var/www/html/$USER and admins to have either unrestricted access or have their root directory be ./ or /www or /etc. I have is set now so users have access to thier home direcotry but I need to upload web files as admin.
